...and sometimes working at the keyboard can be so crumby. What we knead is rests for our overworked wrists:

Alas! It's on backorder.

Love it, gingerpale!

And if we can't get our baguette wrist rests right away we can at least get Hillary nut crackers to hold us over:

Not sure how that translates outside the US but some of us can enjoy it. I thought it was a particularly good likeness as these things go. And she has stainless steel thighs. Wink

lol too...my first though was " what's a baguette doing in front of a keyboard?"...
I myself have a little green duck...
as for the nutcracker...well, we say "casse-noisette" in French so I guess the men would not be so pleased about the simile... Wink

I have a pink Hillary 'Madame President 2008' T-shirt purchased in I-can't-remember-which-US-airport last month. I decided to buy a pink t-shirt in each place we visited, and couldn't resist that one. Hillary and pink = what a winning combination!

Back home it's had lots of comments and a few raised eyebrows.

That's hilarious! But the sad thing is, baguettes from bad bakeries actually look quite similar to that one...

I don't know how realistic it is in person. It's pretty good in a photo...

I just saw that when I was trolling one morning and borrowed their pic.
